less than 1 minute read • By Byron Tardif • July 18, 2022

We are happy to announce that App Service now supports apps targeting .NET 7 Preview 5 across all public regions on both Windows and Linux App Service Plans through the App Service Early Access feature.

Azure Functions has also added initial support for .NET 7 Preview 5.

Any app targeting the .NET 7 on App Service during the preview stages will be automatically updated to the latest .NET 7 Preview release as newer releases become available. This update process will continue all the way up to the RC and GA releases.

Self-contained .NET apps will not be auto-updated since they have no dependency on the runtime provided by App Service.

Want to get started with .NET 7? Follow these guides:

  1. Download .NET 7
  2. Get Started with .NET 7 and Visual Studio
  3. Deploy a .NET application to App Service
